A Coupling of Tradition and Innovation - The Selmer Paris 92DL Supreme Alto Saxophone
After 100 years of innovation, design, and manufacturing of the saxophone, Henri Selmer Paris redefines the modern identity of the alto saxophone with the Supreme.
The creation of the Supreme embodies the culmination of centuries of expertise, combined with a perfectly mastered manufacturing process that lives up to the ambitions of Selmer. The Supreme rises above musical genres. It has all the qualities common to the models that preceded it, meeting the desires of all saxophonists. It’s design and manufacturing incorporates the beauty and care of the creation of the Balanced Action, the legendary suppleness of the Mark VI, the ease of play of the Super Action 80 Series II, the precision and elegance of the Series III, and the power and roundness of the Reference.
It is characterized by a perfectly balanced accuracy, infinite sound colors, and a great ease of response. It hides the natural and inherent constraints of the saxophone, the playing limitations are non-existent. Its roundness and projection make it an instrument that is both traditional and resolutely modern. The refinement and care taken in its manufacturing, as well as its entirely corrected ergonomics, reveal an enjoyment and evidence of playing that has never been seen before.
